European (and global) history of science today is challenged by the need to re-open a discussion about the definition of sciences in the ¿early modern period. Debates ¿about scientific exceptionalism and the contribution of early modern sciences to modernity abound in textbooks, even after thirty years of new ¿works and ¿ideas but are challenged by counter-narratives in the wake of the material, spatial, or global turns.

This series would like to offer a forum to explore other possibilities in terms of researching¿ and writing history of science.
